Instructor: Paul Eggert, Boelter 4532J.
Office hours are Mondays 10:00–11:00 and Thursdays 13:30–14:30.
Lecture, 4 hours; laboratory, 2 hours; outside study, 9 hours.
Prerequisites: Computer Science 32, 33, and 35L.
Introduction to operating systems design and evaluation. Computer
software systems performance, robustness, and functionality. Kernel
structure, bootstrapping, input/output (I/O) devices and
interrupts. Processes and threads; address spaces, memory management,
and virtual memory. Scheduling, synchronization. File systems: layout,
performance, robustness. Distributed systems: networking, remote
procedure call (RPC), asynchronous RPC, distributed file systems,
transactions. Protection and security. Exercises involving
applications using, and internals of, real-world operating
systems. Letter grading.
